University of Oregon Allen Hall School of Journalism and Communication
While at YGH Architecture, Miles was Project Manager/Architect on this facility for the University of Oregon that knits together old and new, tradition and innovation. Created in collaboration with Architects of Record TBG, the expansion and renovation of Allen Hall includes the adaptive reuse of buildings constructed in 1922 and 1954 with carefully integrated new construction. Designed to encourage a culture of collaboration and the use of multi-modal learning, the project provides varied learning environments for students and faculty. The remodelled and new spaces emphasize flexibility in varied types and sizes of rooms for both formal and informal learning. Labs, classrooms, offices, and the spaces between are configured to encourage group meetings, public discourse and interactions between faculty and students.
